product data management

Autodesk Corporate acquisitions

On March 2005, Autodesk acquired the assets of COMPASS systems GmbH for 13 Mio Euro, a European-based developer of the COMPASS family of data management solutions. The assets were used to strengthen Autodesk’s position in the European product data management market.

Revision control – Specialized strategies

The most sophisticated techniques are beginning to be used for the electronic tracking of changes to CAD files (see product data management), supplanting the “manual” electronic implementation of traditional revision control.

ISO 10303 – Overview

Typically STEP can be used to exchange data between CAD, computer-aided manufacturing, computer-aided engineering, product data management/enterprise data modeling and other CAx systems. STEP is addressing product data from mechanical and electrical design, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, analysis and manufacturing, with additional information specific to various industries such as automotive, aerospace, building construction, ship, oil and gas, process plants and others.

François Castaing – With AMC and Chrysler

The product data management was so effective, that after AMC was purchased by Chrysler, the system was expanded throughout the enterprise connecting everyone involved in designing and building products

Product lifecycle management – History

The product data management was so effective that after AMC was purchased by Chrysler, the system was expanded throughout the enterprise connecting everyone involved in designing and building products

Product lifecycle management – Areas of PLM

Product data management is focused on capturing and maintaining information on products and/or services through their development and useful life.

Product lifecycle management – Communicate, manage and collaborate

At the engineering departments level this is the domain of PDM – (product data management) software, at the corporate level EDM (enterprise data management) software, these two definitions tend to blur however but it is typical to see two or more data management systems within an organization

Computer-aided design – Uses

Document management and revision control using Product Data Management (PDM).

Collaborative product development – Introduction

Exactly what technology comes under this title does vary depending on whom one asks; however, it usually consists of the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) areas of: Product Data Management (PDM); Product visualization; team collaboration and conferencing tools; and supplier sourcing software. It is generally accepted as not including CAD geometry tools, but does include data translation technology.

Product data record

It is a key concept of product lifecycle management (PLM) and product data management (PDM), because it represents all the data that PLM processes and software manage and allow access to.

Change management (engineering) – Further reading

Implementing and Integrating Product Data Management and Software Configuration Management.

Product data management

Product data management (PDM) is the business function often within product lifecycle management that is responsible for the management and publication of product data. In software engineering, this is known as version control.

Product data management – Introduction

Product data management is the use of software or other tools to track and control data related to a particular product.

The use of product data management allows a company to track the various costs associated with the creation and launch of a product.

Product data management – Introduction

Product data management is part of product lifecycle management and configuration management, and is primarily used by engineers.

Product data management – Introduction

Product data management (PDM) serves as a central knowledge repository for process and product history, and promotes integration and data exchange among all business users who interact with products — including project managers, engineers, sales people, buyers, and quality assurance teams.

Closed loop lifecycle management – Introduction to development process

PLM as a discipline emerged from tools such as Computer-aided design|CAD, Computer-aided manufacturing|CAM and product data management|PDM, but can be viewed as the integration of these tools with methods, people and the processes through all stages of a product’s life

Closed loop lifecycle management – Communicate, manage and collaborate

At the engineering departments level this is the domain of PDM – (product data management) software, at the corporate level EDM (enterprise data management) software, these two definitions tend to blur however but it is typical to see two or more data management systems within an organization

Computer aided design – Uses

*Document management and revision control using Product Data Management (PDM).

European Medicines Agency – Operations

The Secretariat is organised into five units: Directorate, Human Medicines Development and Evaluation, Patient Health Protection, Veterinary Medicines and Product Data Management, Information and Communications Technology and Administration

Product information management – Synonyms and related terms

* PDM – Product data management derives from the concept of engineering data management (EDM), denoting systems for the effective management of product development data and the coordination of manufacturing-related processes. The term is used primarily in the field of computer-aided design (CAD).

Version control – Specialized strategies

The most sophisticated techniques are beginning to be used for the electronic tracking of changes to computer-aided design|CAD files (see product data management), supplanting the manual electronic implementation of traditional revision control.

STEP-NC

‘STEP-NC’ is a machine tool control language that extends the ISO 10303|ISO 10303 STEP standards with the machining model in ISO 14649, adding Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing|geometric dimension and tolerance data for inspection, and the STEP Product Data Management|PDM model for integration into the wider enterprise. The combined result has been standardized as ISO 10303-238 (also known as AP238).

Service product management – Business Management System Support

Efficient management of service product cost and revenues according to service contract and incurred costs. The same is generally needs a service product manager to provide product data management for Enterprise resource planning systems.

List of CAx companies

Software using ‘computer-aided’ technologies (CAx) has been produced since the 1970s through to the present for a variety of computer platforms. This software may include applications for Computer-aided design|Computer-Aided Design (CAD), Computer-aided engineering (CAE), Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) and Product Data Management (PDM).

*Windchill PDMLink – A web-based master product data management repository that also helps teams manage critical processes such as change/configuration management, and detailed design.

JT (visualization format)

It can contain any combination of approximate (faceted) data, boundary representation surfaces (NURBS), Product Manufacturing Information|Product and Manufacturing Information (PMI), and Metadata (textual attributes) either exported from the native CAD system or inserted by a product data management (PDM) system.

Tool management – PDM (documentation)

In product data management (PDM) systems every product’s Manufacturing process management|work plan is saved which comprises CAD Models, the description of working steps and a list of needed equipment

Form, fit and function

The assessment of impact on form, fit, and function is commonly used to determine if a proposed change to a part will be minor, that is, it has no impact on the form, fit, and function, or major, that is, it does impact the form, fit, function. The F3 rule is at the basis of enterprise material management systems, ERP, Product Data Management (PDM) or Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) systems.

Arihant class submarine – Development

Once the design was finalized, detailed engineering was implemented at Larsen and Toubro’s submarine design centre at their Hazira shipbuilding facility using 3Dmodelling and product data management software. Tata Power SED built the control systems for the submarine. The steam turbines and associated systems integrated with the PWR were supplied by Walchandnagar Industries.
